A Lively Experiment in Following Your Faith

When Roger Williams founded Providence in 1636, he envisioned a community where people could freely exchange ideas and practice their faith, calling it a “lively experiment.”

Nearly 400 years later, Williams’ dream continues to thrive. The Providence of today features vibrant neighborhoods, great restaurants and plenty to see and do, but still celebrates faith of all kinds. Hold your next event in the birthplace of religious freedom in America — Providence, RI.
